address. mr. obama's worst term a lot of evidence of the peril to the planet. record-breaking heat waves, forest fires, disappearing polar ice in a court with the prediction of the climate scientists. the effects were happening faster and more severely than predicted. you do not have to believe the scientists while reasserting american global energy leadership. even balancing the budget will be easier with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure
umbrella. the united states doesn't have that choice because if we do what obama wants to do with which modern liberalism wants to do is re-create that choice and shift the resource that comes out of this remarkable engine of a free market into social welfare, increasingly unsustainable, and allowing it to come out of essentially the budget of the greatest power on earth. and choosing the european path, hoping we'll keep the world at bay, hoping we will sustain ourselves with a reduced presence in the world and a radically reduced capacity for defending ourselves, defending our allies and projecting our power. so that would be sort of an an litic way to present why we are in decline. it's not a conscious choice. i don't want to play the amateur psychiatrist or even a professional one in this. i don't want to look in obama's soul but if you look at where modern liberalism is taking us, it is to re-create the choice the europeans made in the late 1940's after the second world war. the problem for us, and i think the problem for the west is if we decline and use our resources internally, w
it continues to expand and president obama gives them more and more power. when people challenged it, the obama administration will come in and argue that they will keep evidence from the court. the logistical everything a state secret, which they have done. it is the worst possible situation. i think when you look back at eisenhower it should be left this way. it is a lot like our security space. host: a few questions on twitter about whose job is to push back against this -- "is it the court's duty to keep the executive from trouncing congressional powers or is it the congress's duty not to get trounced? guest: it is both of theirs. we have a wonderful system that was developed by a genius, james madison. he created a system of tripartheid branches that notably do not have enough power to govern alone. madisonian austin. or four congresses have been the worst in the history of united states of the total abandonment of the check and balance. fact he is by letting court liberal and democratic values. the republicans took that same position under bush says they are silent. the result is, we have
and obviously better than the never balancing budget obama and the democrats have proposed for the last four years. so you look at all the data out there. all the public opinion polls say that the american people think we're spending too much money. that the american people think that we are taxing too much. but the problem is that as republicans, i think this goes to what representative huelskamp just said, as republicans we have been seen as the party of big business. and we should never be the party of big business. we should be the party of individuals. the party that helps individuals have a fair share. we have a system that is unfair to small businesses, to individuals, we have a tax system that is unfair, we have a regulatory system that is unfair, and when republicans once again start talking about mainstream, about small businesses, about individuals, that's when we're going to win the fight. but if we keep representing big business if everything that comes out of the house seems like we're just -- that we're just worried about what job creators, i always tell the joke, we always us
specifically told al qaeda to disperse and they did. in addition to that, we have been, the obama administration, under the directive of the president, who undertook the most concentrated effort in history in terms of targeting a specific terrorist group. we have taken out huge proportion of the leadership of core al qaeda. a huge proportion. you don't want to be number three or number four in line in that business because they're disappearing as fast as they get the job. . the top dog who took the place of osama bin laden is still at large, but i think there are those in the intelligence community and the administration who believe that over the course of the next months that core al qaeda can really be almost degraded to the point that that is no longer the threat. the threat has augmented in al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, al qaeda in iraq, which is now playing in syria and al qaeda in the mahgab. and that's why the president has made the decision to support the efforts of the french in mali, and that's there has been a focused effort including after them in yemen to focus o
state of the obama administration's response to the attack. four months later, the administration still cannot or will not name the terrorist groups responsible for the attacks or the names of these group leaders. four months later, despite constant video footage that many members of congress have seen and many eyewitnesses, not a single benghazi terrorist suspect is in custody. four months later, the unfinished business has had access to only one suspect, ali, for just three hours and the tunisian government kept the f.b.i. team waiting for more than five weeks -- five weeks when they were finally granted access. four months later, the administration still has not discussed the serious between the groups behind the benghazi attack and the leaders of the attack on the u.s. embassies in cairo, tunis the same week of september 11. four months later, following the pickering report on state department failures leading up to the attack, not a single state department employee has been fired and held responsible for their role in denying adequate security for the consulate in benghazi. four mo
. that is race in america. a few days ago, president barack obama put its hand on the lincoln and martin luther king bible and took the oath of office almost 150 years since the emancipation population went into effect. he talked about the country's historic and continuing march for greater freedom. we at the "washington monthly" found it appropriate to devote the subjects to the conditions of minorities in america today. president obama as measured by his november vote totals retained the support of the americans of color, neither he nor the country have talked about much of race. he mentioned race fewer times in his first two years than any democrat resident since 1961. when he did talk about race, it often provoked a fierce backlash as when he said last year that if he had a son, he would look like trayvon martin, the young man who was killed tragedy in florida. tremendous backlash to that. he went silent on that issue. there has been generally a politically imposed code of silence around this residence and around the country, making it difficult for our nation to acknowledge and confront di
, they are going to be a party of absence. secretary clinton and president obama, something that couldn't be avoided. something that wasn't on the radar for them. they have to get over losing two presidential elections and let's come together. the best thing for them to do is to get on with it. we are a progressive country and we need to be progressive in our thinking. host: do you think the questions by republicans were fair or too tough? caller: especially my representative from south carolina, joe wilson, the man who called the president a liar and the other representatives from south carolina. they want to be stuck in the past and they aren't thinking progressively and that's where this country is headed. host: the new chairman of the committee is ed royce of california. and one of his questions for secretary clinton was why weren't the -- why were the security forces withdrawn from benghazi. and here's what she had to say. >> there's a lot of important questions in that, mr. chairman. and let me begin by saying that i was aware of certain incidents at our facility and the attack on
the president of the united states, president obama, president obama said he could live with this. i want to congratulate senator harry reid, senate majority leader, i'll say that here on the floor because he says it's the right thing to do and thank you for passing us a clean bill. that will give them the authority and the responsibility to do what they really want to do. not playing hardball. not throwing rocks. as a matter of fact senator harry reid said clean bill, good thing. that's up to them. it's up to them to take up their activities that are before us, and it's up to this house of representatives. as we finish this, the young leader of the ways and means committee, dave camp, paul ryan, and others will be here debating these ideas. immediately after that you will see where candice miller, the house administration chairman, will come and talk with this house and the american people about the responsibility that she has to ensure that what we do is correct and proper. and then this body will have a opportunity to vote yes or no, and that will be an authority and responsibility onc
administration. ms. hyde was nominated by president obama and confirmed by the u.s. senate in 2009 as the administrator of samhsa. she has served as a state mental health director, state human services director, city housing and human services director, as well as ceo of a private, nonprofit managed behavioral health firm. she is a member of or has served as consultant to many national organizations including the john d. and catherine t. macarthur foundation, the american college of mental health administration, and the united states department of justice. our second witness is no stranger to this committee. dr. thomas insel, director of the national institute of mental health at the national institutes of health. he has been director since the fall of 2002. prior to that, he was professor of psychiatry at emory university, and he was the founding director for the center of behavioral neuroscience, one of the largest science and behavioral centers funded by the national science foundation. he has published over 250 scientific articles and four books, including "biology of parental
violation of women's rights in china and now we today under the obama administration are funding it, mr. fortenberry and mr. speaker. it's something that has to end. we should be on the side of life and respect, not enabling --. . mr. fortenberry: people may not agree with us, but the vast majority of americans do agree that the government should not be entangled in this. in other words, taxpayer money should not be going for the provision of abortion. that's one bit of good news. the second bit of good news is, i think, again, those of us who have been here a little while, who have been in these trenches trying to beg and plead for an increase of awareness as to what the consequences of abortion are, young people are recognizing that, again, there's got to be a better way. they've lived with this through their generation. they've seen the scars, seen the wounds, seen the effects on society and they're coming forward and saying women deserve better. can't we be loving enough, can't we be big enough to do something different here? and i think that's a great sign of encouragement for two
